11 Behaviours Of A Nigerian In-Law That Will Show You Pepper

March 14, 2021

If your in-laws display any of these behaviours, you can be sure they will move mad and show you pepper when you marry their child. Escape now before it’s too late.

1. The first time you visited them, they asked you to enter kitchen and cook.

PLACE ORDER – we're at your door

As per, “Let us taste the food of our son’s wife.” Okay nau. The Lord is your muscle.

2. Or they are asking you not to visit them empty-handed.

Corporate begging, but make it in-law style, yunno.

3. His mother ‘jokes’ about coming to live with you after marriage.

Come and live with you to do what, plis? Shebi their own house is no longer inhabitable, abi?

4. They don’t agree with your union at first but after ‘convincing them’, they agreed.

‘We love you like our daughter oh, but we don’t want our son to marry an Igbo woman.’

My dearest sister, gather your two slippers and flee. Even if they agree to the marriage, that convincing that they were convinced will wear off one day and you will not like yourself.

5. They are concerned about your ‘choice of dressing.’

You know what they mean about this. And they know too. They know.

6. They want to know how you cope with such long nails.

Wait until you marry and they ask you to cut it off or stop fixing nails.

7. They are stylishly reminding you that your husband-to-be has younger ones that are older than you.

Put two and two together, please. We cannot be telling you everything.

8. They want you to stop pursuing education because of family.

Of course, they won’t be so direct. But when they tell you to have children before Masters or something like that, you know what time it is.

9. They want to have a say in the number of children you should have.

You: We have decided on just 1 child.

Them: Ehn? Make it 3 oh. 1 is too small. If you can even make it 4 sef, we don’t mind.

10. They want you to be the assistant caterer during Ileya and Christmas, and other family celebrations.

Pin on Cooking

Is it not just to peel Maggi and slice onions?‘ Until you are cooking an entire cooler of Jollof rice, frying beef and going house to house to serve them.

11. The siblings are always stressing you all in the name of ‘our wife.’

Our wife, our wife, until they drive you mad with frustration. Please dear, you better japa for your own sanity.
